    It's not a S3 topic. Samsung already pays licensing fees to Microsoft to use the FAT file system, so there's no danger of anything happening on that front. If there were, Microsoft would have taken Samsung to court over it as well.

    It could be a "fringe S3 topic" tho if this prevents the release/sale of Moto phones in the U.S., thus derailing plans to drop your gently used S3 in favor of a brand new Moto flagship...

    Lol... I'm reaching, I know.

    Why would Microsoft do this? Don't they actually make more money off android than Google?
